Office Hours: T / TH 11:00 AM- 12:00 PM and by appointment

Teaching Philosophy:
My classes are reading, writing, talking, laughing, and reflecting heavy. I aim to share with my students my love for literature and to show them the power of stories. By examining the importance, the complexities, and the problematics of language, narrative, and representation, I hope to equip my students with the necessary tools to think critically about the world around them.
